“One of Australia's best located and presented B&B's”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

The quaint and charming seaside village of Stanley is a real gem - and Hanlon House is definitely the 'character-rich' place to stay to savour the total Stanley experience. Maxine and Graham are the perfect B&B hosts - friendly, engaging and knowledgeable, and delivering a tourism product which is very well presented - comfortable rooms and a superb country breakfast served from a dining room which has a wonderful view of the seaside.

We also enjoyed a wonderful evening meal at the recommended Zanders restaurant.

Hanlon House doesn't disappoint. The location close to the nut & the town & sea mean you can walk & enjoy the magnificent views. The room was large & the bed was extremely comfortable. Maxine & Graham are generous & friendly hosts & it was a real pleasure to stay in their character home for 2 nights. Maxine was kind enough to organise our restaurant bookings for the 2 nights we stayed & nothing was ever too much trouble. You could excuse people for being a tad jaded after running a B&B for so many years but this couple are the perfect hosts & are to be congratulated . Similar to many of the other reviews, we would not hesitate to recommend this place as an ideal spot if you ever find yourself in lovely Stanley.

Room Tip: The room we stayed with the spa on the level containing the breakfast room/kitchen was excellent.

It is difficult to improve on the previous reviews so WELL DONE MAXINE AND GRAHAM! We stayed in six different types of accommodation during our 15 nights in Tasmania and Hanlon House was exceptional. We cannot recommend it highly enough. We would love to stay again.

It's always a great feeling when you get something right first time and we did with Hanlon B&B. Top it off with a fine dining gastronomic experience at Zander's restaurant and it becomes a special stay to remember.

Good afternoon,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor. This is very much appreciated and it was great to have you stay with us. We look forward to another visit from you or your friends at a later date. It was lovely to have met you both.
Kind regards,

It's a wonderful experience staying here! We should have booked one more night, spend longer time with Maxine and Graham, who tried their best to make us feel at home. The sweet welcome drink and food, the special fruity wine and cake, the lovely fireplace, their specialty breakfast, and also the baby penguins in the garden!All these impressed us so much!!
We really enjoyed the chatting with the couple and other guests (an Australian couple and another Chinese family) , feeling super relaxed...which doesn't happen very often in my B&B experience and encourage me to try more in the future! The Graham's favorite and Maxine's speciaty breakfast are both super!
The last but not least, their location and view is super, I cannot wait jumping into the sea upon my arrival, as it looks fantastic when I see the beach from living room window.

Sorry Maxine, we realized we forgot the packed food in your icebox after we left. Hope they've been removed before getting smelly. Thanks again!

热情好客的主人,美丽的海边小屋,非常难忘的住宿体验!不费力气就看到了企鹅宝宝,因为主人在花园里为企鹅筑了巢!超级喜欢这对老夫妻,淳朴忠厚,竭尽所能给客人宾至如归的感觉。。不仅品尝到美味的早餐,还有好像是自酿的甜酒和点心,男主人晚上还抱来一堆柴火帮我们点燃了火炉,和我们一起聊天,仿佛老朋友一般。。感觉太美妙!

I spent one night here but wish I had spent more. This is the complete package - great hosts, great accommodation, great location and especially great breakfast. Fascinating town too. There was great spirit during breakfast - seven people sharing stories over a wonderful home cooked meal (I had eggs and freshly smoked salmon and the rest), all with a view over Bass Strait, including one couple (on their honeymoon) who gleefully described having been kept awake the previous night by the noisy penguins sheltering from the powerful rain squalls in the yard of the house (the Little Penguins were, indeed, there, and in some numbers, but I slept well). Thoroughly recommended.

The best B&B we have stayed at - anywhere! It's all the little touches that make Hanlon House so special. Maxine and Graham are the nicest couple and the best ambassadors for Tassie and Stanley. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed two nights - you need at least two nights to take in Stanley - but my husband wished we could have spent another night just to have another of Maxine's famous breakfasts! Would highly recommend visits to Dismal Swamp, north-west coast beaches, Highfield House and, of course, The Nut. The location of Hanlon House is fantastic. Our son loved seeing so many penguins roaming around the backyard at night. An absolute delight - we can't wait to return!
